You can learn more about them here.

Essential Controls

The most critical editing tools appear in the Quick Edit panel
Exposure – The Exposure correction automatically optimizes the light exposure in every pixel.  These pixels smoothly blend to create the perfect exposure with no need for additional masking or selections.

  • Light Diffusion – If you’d like softer light in your photo, try the Light Diffusion setting. 
  • Depth – Depth is useful to add visual clarity to your image. It increases the contrast in each and every pixel, making it is easier to discern the details.
  • Vibrancy – Adds saturation to colors that are low in saturation, without over-saturating colors that were already vibrant.  This effect generally works best at a lower value.
  • Reset – Rescan the image and apply the recommended corrections and Smart Preset.
